RE: XML for Video, Pizza Shops & TakeOut
That is why you could use the context-dependencies effectively. The locality of culture becomes virtual. It is the consolidation of the definition of definitions that becomes global. Isn't that why the semantic web want ontological services? Of course, ontological entanglement is an issue but it always is. "In a society characterized by complex and impersonal social relationships, there is increasing reliance on formal controls of enacted law and supporting correctional administration. The greater share of the urbanite's behavior continues to be subject to the mechanisms considered above. But the increasing domination of urban culture and industrial technology has created large aggregations of persons dependent on one another for goods and services with only infrequent and transitory contacts with one another. The individual is increasingly exposed to tenuous and impersonal relations which tie his interests to a broad social scheme without providing opportunities to develop the emotional linkages resulting from frequent and enduring social interaction. ... Socialization is complicated by the dynamism of the society. Social change can make habitual and traditional ways inappropriate for gratification of personal wants. Violations of fundamental norms are less visible socially when the population is numerous and heterogeneous and interaction between offenders and conformists is less direct and continuous." Elmer Hubert Johnson - 1968 A self-profiling system such as is possible with HumanML and the use of such as location/context dependent services restores personal choice and personal service while enabling the aggregation to continue unimpeded. The reliance on formal controls is an effect of the aggregation into locales. One can live in the real desert or one can declare a virtual oasis. len -----Original Message----- From: David Brownell [mailto:david-b@p...] I'd rather see the pooling be locality-centric than be another excuse for global consolidation. If local culture is going to consolidate, the control should stay in local hands.
